We spent two nights there and all was excellent. The owners Jim and Jay made you feel like at home, many interesting things about local life and nature we could learn from them. Cabanas was very well equipped and furnished with taste. The owners offer many interesting trips like kavaking, birding excursion, fishing, wildlife viewing. This is the place for...

My wife and I stayed here for a week as part of a birding tour with Victor Emanuel Nature Tours of Bocas del Toro. Our tour group were the only guests of Jim, Jay and Renee (the developers and owners of Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge). One cannot appreciate the quality of the lodge, rooms and property without seeing it....

We recently spent 5 days at Tranquilo Bay as a group of 14 (including 8 children, between the ages of 3 and 10). The whole crew at Tranquilo did a fantastic job of making our vacation an excellent one, with a special shout out to the guides, Ramon and Natalia. They were able to tailor any activity or excursion perfectly...

our family of 4 including a 17 year old and a 24 year old stayed here for 4 nights. We were tremendously impressed with Tranquilo Bay.

Probably one of the nicest places in Bocas Del Toro - if you are looking for nature and tranquillity - this is the place. We were in Tranquilo Bay beginning December 2015 for 3 days. The Texan owners have done a fabulous job in creating a perfect Getaway for the guests. The place is totally isolated – you need a...

November 2015, we traveled to Tranquilo Bay. What a wonderful experience we had. The owners were delightful and accommodating, the staff were tremendous and the location was peaceful and blissful. While we were 1 of 2 couples staying at the lodge, we were so happy that this was our last location in a 2 week visit - such a wonderful...

After my first 3 nights at Tranquilo Bay, I understand at last why many reviewers wrote that it was their second, third or even fourth visit. Welcome to paradise, but not only for the breathtaking natural setting, nor for the great job that the Texan owners have made with the luxury bungalows, the amazing food and all that you would...

We visited Tranquilo Bay with our 11 year-old daughter for about a full week and were blown away by the comfort, modernity, and kindness that has been built into Tranquilo Bay.

This was my third trip to the lodge and probably the best. Went with six friends with the primary purpose to catch some Tarpon. In that we were successful having caught (and released) four along with many Jack Crevelle.
